Pete Frates joined the Boston College baseball team as the director of baseball operations during the 2012 season. A former player, Frates captained the Eagles his senior year in 2007.

Frates was diagnosed with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) in March 2012. He played in the outfield for the Maroon and Gold from 2004-07. In both his junior and senior year, he tied for the team lead with five home runs, finishing his career with 11. He also tied for a team-high eight sacrifice hits his senior year and led the Eagles with 19 stolen bases.

The centerfielder set a modern BC record with eight RBIs in one game, going 4-for-6 with a grand slam, a three-run homer and an RBI double at Maryland on April 14, 2007. In Frates' junior year, he went 4-for-4 with a home run, a double and three RBIs in the Eagles' 10-2 win over Harvard in the Beanpot Championship at Fenway Park.

Prior to playing at The Heights, Frates played baseball, football and hockey at St. John's Prep in Danvers, Mass. He was named a Catholic Conference All-Star his senior year and was a member of the 2002 and 2003 conference championship teams.

Frates created the Baseball Mentor Night, when former players speak to current Eagles about life after baseball. Along with his BC baseball duties, Frates works to raise ALS awareness and education and funds for research. He and his family established the Pete Frates #3 Fund to help subsidize medical care and expenses not covered by health insurance. To learn more about Frates' story, visit www.petefrates.com.

Frates graduated from Boston College in 2007 with a bachelor's degree in communications. He currently resides in his hometown of Beverly, Mass., with wife Julie.
